Medication Inventory Management 2019
How Close Is Your Vendor to Enabling True Enterprise MIM?

Authored by: | Read Time: 3  minutes

Enterprise medication inventory management (MIM) can create substantial efficiency gains and financial savings, but the reality today is that no pharmacy or EMR vendor delivers the full visibility hospitals need. Even those vendors furthest down the path lag behind the inventory capabilities found in other industries, such as retail and manufacturing. To highlight which vendors have made progress and where gaps still remain, this report compares the reality of each vendor’s MIM offering with the full spectrum of capabilities required for true enterprise MIM. Additional findings are also highlighted in two areas that impact MIM—automated dispensing cabinets and medication kit/tray management solutions.

Key Findings

  1. Omnicell Furthest on the Road to Enterprise MIM; Customers Often Unclear on Future Vision

  3. Gaps in Integration and Visibility Tied to Low Purchase Energy for ARxIUM, Swisslog, Epic, & Cerner
  4. Hardware Defects in New Omnicell XT Lead to Downtime and Manual Inventory Counting
  5. Kit Check and IntelliGuard Offer Accurate Visibility and Expiration Tracking; Inmar First to Provide Non-RFID Option
